New Measurement Device: Carbon Dioxide As Geothermometer

Researchers quantify rare CO2 variants using laser spectroscopy

22-May-2019

For the first time it is possible to measure, simultaneously and with extreme precision, four rare molecular variants of carbon dioxide (CO2) using a novel laser instrument. It is thus able to measure the temperature during the formation of CO2-binding carbonates and carbonaceous fossils ...

Super cool atom thermometer

Physicists face the daunting task of developing new, reliable ways of measuring extreme low temperatures

11-Dec-2009

As physicists strive to cool atoms down to ever more frigid temperatures, they face the daunting task of developing new, reliable ways of measuring these extreme lows. Now a team of physicists has devised a thermometer that can potentially measure temperatures as low as tens of trillionths of a ...

NIST calculations may improve temperature measures for microfluidics

14-Sep-2009

If you wanted to know if your child had a fever or be certain that the roast in the oven was thoroughly cooked, you would, of course, use a thermometer that you trusted to give accurate readings at any temperature within its range. However, it isn't that simple for researchers who need to measure ...

Scientists design bomb-proof thermometer to measure the heat of explosions

The thermometer can take 50,000 measurements per second up to 3000 K (2727 °C).

10-Oct-2008

Scientists at the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in Teddington have designed a high-speed thermometer that can measure the temperature inside explosions without being damaged in the impact. The shockwave, heat, soot and debris from an explosion can damage thermometers. Conventional ...
